Wheelchair Reversing Camera


Metro Makeathon




Vinny, like a lot of powerchair users, has minimal visibility when reversing. Vinny wanted a way to be able to see behind him without physically exerting himself, enabling him to navigate more confidently and independently. Vinny imagined something similar to a car's reversing camera.


Team Vinny developed a modular reversing camera system from off-the-shelf components. The camera has a 170-degree view, so that Vinny can see past his chair's wheels. The live feed is transmitted through Bluetooth to Vinny's mobile phone and displayed using a free application. The camera can be powered be the chair's existing battery.
